    Whistle on Ebay

    There is a whistle for sale on Ebay, claimed to be ca. 1895-1905 from the steamer Federal.

    Thanks Hank...I'm really clueless to this sort of thing, is the starting bid in the ballpark? I just never expected a vintage whistle, even one this big, to be worth that. Looks like bronze to me.

    And the pictures don't do justice with how big this thing is, despite the yardstick shown next to it.

    And hoping you don't mind, here is the link...

      (wow) Thats a whole lot bigger than anything I build,!! 3" npt inlet,,?
      ID say its WELL worth the starting bid,,,. if its all brass? Its worth that in scrap.! Though its a lovely whistle ,,. Hope the history is correct,,..

        Dave,
        Time to buy a bigger lathe?? :)
        I wonder what the CFM demand is of that puppy?? Too bad it's on eBay, it really should be in a museum Where many could see it--and hopefully one that could blow it once in a while too, so people can hear it!
        S'
